We found this hotel very comfortable although the room was very dark as there were a lot of tall trees outside. The staff were pleasant and the breakfast was really excellent. It was very convenient to get the hotel shuttle to the railway station for the TranzAlpine trip, though the next day we had to get a taxi as our train to Kaikoura was too early for the shuttle.
We can recommend the situation - it is within walking distance of Riccarton Road shops, Hagley Park, the Botanic Gardens and a longish walk to the centre of Cambridge. Also a longish walk to Deans Reserve which is of great interest.
We ate on 2 evenings at Argee Bargee's, a really good Indian restaurant, Lovely service and good food.
